Youth Ministries

There are multiple ways that our young people can provide service to the parish community. Under the Liturgical Ministries Tab, there are Altar Servers and Sacristans. Under the Music Ministries are the Children's Choir and the Children's Bell Choir. In each of the Ministries, there are several different volunteer items that have no age requirements or activities that can be done as a family. 

The following items list activities that support the spiritual and social growth of our young people.


Children's Liturgy of the Word. Volunteers lead children ages 4 - 8 in age appropriate bible stories and prayer during the 10:00 Mass from September through mid-June. With many volunteers, each instructor is asked to participate only a few times per year.

PREP Program

Volunteers are needed as teachers to instruct children in their Roman Catholic faith on Monday evenings during the school year. Click here for more information about the PREP Program.

Vacation Bible School

Volunteers are needed as leaders and aids for a fun-filled week in late June.  Children participate in songs, crafts, snacks, stories, and games designed to enhance their understanding of their Roman Catholic Faith. For more information on the current year's theme and to obtain a registration packet, click here.

Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts
